I am an artist whose interests lie in sound, storytelling, voice and the art of making.  I explore ideas using different media and have forged many successful collaborations working with other artists, organisations, producers, performers, writers and directors in a variety of settings.  

I compose  music for media and performing arts, and am a singer-songwriter and one half of post-minimalist duo Poiesisspecialise in music and narrative, and creating through-composed narratives. My work frequently marries soundscape, field recording and electroacoustic composition with narrative, voice and scored instrumentation. I hold an MA in composing music for film and television from Kingston University and am a former BBC Radio Drama composer-in-residence.

 

In 2012 I co-founded the co-operative production company Open Audio Ltd and have produced radio for the BBC and international networks. I regularly contribute to a wide variety of arts industry events; in recent years this has included judging the Ivor Novello Awards and BBC Audio Drama Awards.

I was awarded a PhD by Bournemouth University in 2017 and am an experienced researcher, facilitator and mentor. I hold a PGCE in Higher Education and am an HEA Fellow. I have taught at several universities, run workshops for professionals and community groups, and am frequently called upon as a guest speaker, hosts include: The Slade school of Fine Art; The Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship; IRCAM in Paris and The BBC Current Affairs Department.

Whether you’re interested in discussing music for a project or working collaboratively with me on something, commissioning research, or have an enquiry about workshops, guest speaking or mentoring, please get in touch.
